Man City Star Yaya Toure Pays Tribute To United And Liverpool Transfer Deals Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has paid tribute to league rivals Manchester United and Liverpool by claiming that they are responsible for three of the five best transfer deals this summer, the Daily Star reports. United smashed the British transfer record with a £60m move for Angel Di Maria while Radamel Falcao followed him in on loan. Those moves caught Toure’s eye as particularly impressive – as did Liverpool’s swoop for former City striker Mario Balotelli. Real Madrid’s move for James Rodriguez and Alvaro Negredo’s loan switch to Valencia completed his top five. He said: “I think definitely Di Maria and Rodriguez. “Rodriguez was a fantastic one, and as well United with the move for Falcao, he is a great striker, unbelievable. “[Negredo] has had injury problems but he has been brilliant for us this last year and I think he will be a great move. “We will be sad to see him go because he was one of our t ...

Messi shortlisted for Ballon d'Or 29 November 2012 Updated 15:37 GMT Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta have been named on a three-man shortlist for this year's Ballon d'Or prize, Fifa has announced. Messi, 25, has scored 82 goals this calendar year - just three short of the record set by Gerd Mueller in 1972. Real Madrid's former Manchester United player Ronaldo also makes the list, along with Barcelona's Iniesta. Pep Guardiola, Vicente del Bosque and Jose Mourinho are shortlisted for coach of the year. The winners will be announced on 7 January. Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Britain's sole representative on the initial 23-man list, failed to make it through. His Old Trafford team-mate Robin Van Persie also missed the cut, as did Manchester City trio Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Yaya Toure.

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli could return to the side for their FA Cup clash with Watford on Saturday. The Italian has been out of action over the festive period through illness, while his agent Mino Raiola has recently insisted his client will remain with the Premier League champions, with Goal.com revealing AC Milan are preparing a bid to sign the former Inter man. City were hampered by hamstring injury picked up by Sergio Aguero in their 3-0 win over Stoke on New Year’s Day which could see him ruled out for a couple of weeks while Yaya Toure played in his last league game before departing for the Africa Cup of Nations. But assistant manager David Platt told reporters: “Mario’s been back on the training pitch for the past two or three days, it looks as if he’s shifted the illness off. He trained this morning. “The problem Mario had was he was ill, came back, trained, had a relapse with his illness and went back down again. “It looks as though he’s got past that now and he’s ha ...

United won another classic Manchester derby with Robin Van Persie's deflected late free-kick handing the Reds a sensational 3-2 triumph after City had fought back from two goals down. Wayne Rooney's two similar first-half strikes had the Reds on course to end the champions' unbeaten home run in the Barclays Premier League that has lasted almost two years. The match looked to have turned completely with half an hour left as Ashley Young had a goal wrongly ruled out before Yaya Toure netted within seconds. It allowed the Blues to stage a comeback that led to Pabo Zabaleta levelling from a corner on 86 minutes but the visitors were simply not prepared to settle for remaining three points clear at the top of the table. Incredibly, Van Persie had the final say in stoppage time to end City's proud run and inflict their first league defeat since last April. There were surprises in both line-ups with Mario Balotelli starting for the hosts while Antonio Valencia and Tom Cleverley were fit enough to represent the R ...
Premier League, Etihad Stadium - Manchester City 2 (Yaya Toure 60, Zabaleta 86) Manchester United 3 (Rooney 16, 29, Van Persie 90+2) Robin Van Persie scored an injury-time free-kick as United beat City 3-2 in the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium to move six points clear at the top of the Premier League table. A Wayne Rooney brace saw United go in 2-0 up at the break only for City to equalise with four minutes left as Pablo Zabaleta slammed home after Yaya Toure had earlier pulled one back. But Van Persie's free-kick took a deflection off Samir Nasri and flew into the far corner to give United a dramatic win. The game ended amid chaotic scenes as Rio Ferdinand seemed to be struck by a coin, with blood pouring from his head. The late incident, which came after more than 90 minutes of heated exchanges and late challenges, will surely be investigated by the authorities. Roberto Mancini started Mario Balotelli alongside Sergio Aguero in attack, with Carlos Tevez left on the bench against his former side ...

Wayne Rooney is the only England star nominated for the Ballon D’Or. But FIFA’s 23-man list was a slap in the face for Chelsea, who do not have one nominee despite their first-ever European Cup triumph. Only Didier Drogba made the list — and he left last summer. Three-time winner Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo also made the cut. Manchester City had Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Mario Balotelli nominated following their title triumph. Rooney’s United team-mate Robin Van Persie was listed for his goalscoring exploits with Arsenal before his transfer. Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is a contender for manager of the year alongside City’s Roberto Mancini and United’s Alex Ferguson. FIFA will reveal the final shortlist for each category on November 29. Read more:

Football - Premier League Balotelli, Rooney named on Ballon d'Or shortlist The shortlist for the FIFA Ballon d'Or award has been revealed, with Manchester City contributing three players and rivals Manchester United two. City secured their first league title since 1968 in May and lead the Premier League contingent, with Mario Balotelli, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero all in contention. Manchester United are represented by Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney. The Englishman - a surprise inclusion - has scored 25 goals in 2012 to Messi's 73, did not win a domestic trophy and failed to make an impact for England at Euro 2012. Chelsea's achievements last season are recognised with a nomination for Didier Drogba, who now plays for Shanghai Shenhua. While the Premier League is responsible for six of the names on the shortlist, La Liga leads the way with 12 representatives.

Manchester City will 'probably' try to sell Balotelli this summer, admits Mancini Italian boss finally loses patience with 21-year-old striker following sending off against Arsenal in 1-0 defeat and feels striker may 'lose talent' if his attitude doesn't change. Roberto Mancini has admitted Manchester City will 'probably' try to sell Mario Balotelli this summer following the striker's dismissal during the club's defeat to Arsenal on Sunday. The 21-year-old has become a figure of frustration at the Etihad Stadium this season. Despite his undoubted talent, his discipline both on and off the field has often let down his manager and team-mates. This had led to reports of his exit from the club in the summer as Mancini was said to have finally lost patience with the Italian striker, and he has now admitted that the former Inter Milan man could be sold, before revealing that he would not play again this season. When Mancini was asked if Balotelli could be sold, he told reporters: "Probably but I don’t know, i ...

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini said he was frustrated with Mario Balotelli but refused to give up on the young striker. The Italian boss was highly critical of the 21-year-old's contributions and attitude in Saturday's clash with Sunderland despite his two goals in the 3-3 draw at the Etihad Stadium. There have also been reports of a dressing-room bust-up with team-mate Yaya Toure and speculation that City would make every effort to offload Balotelli over the summer. Mancini rejected any notion of cashing in on the temperamental but highly-prized forward who he had described over the weekend as untrustworthy. "I am frustrated because sometimes I think it is not possible that a player with his class and his technique can play a game like this," Mancini said. "I think he is young and I hope for him he can improve very quickly for his future. "A player like Mario in the Premier League should score one or two goals every game."
